Forum: texts Subject: Is the Archive now under the control of Sun Systems?

Gerry

Pooh has never actually clarified her (?) role with the Archive.

If I was the person responsible for FLASH on the IA, AND having to front up to Brewster when things go wrong, you can be 10000% certain you would see me monitoring the Archive forums.

I bet you would too. (NB, no "?" after that sentence means its a statement of logical thinking by me.)

More logical thinking, seeing FLASH is a major change for the IA, WE can be 9999999.9% certain that Brewster is hearing us yelling and screaming in frustration, no doubt Brewster is aware that I no longer have hair on my head, and that you are rushing to finish your life's work.

why did it take so long for Pooh to begin commenting on the Forums? Look back at the replies, they do indicate lots more than a passing knowledge of the changes, yet shows lack of knowledge about why Flash.

Pooh is into damage control mode, 24/7, you and me might be the only moaners, BUT Pooh and Brewster are the ones privy to IA statistics, the number of FAILED attempts to upload.

I note Pooh has not once mentioned that very few people are affected.

Therefore I went to check out a page called IA Server Statistics to check, and guess what, Pooh got their FIRST, its the ONE page of the IA that still WON'T download FOR ME.

Hey, Pooh can you switch that page back on ASAP, or ASAP post the this forum the statistic you KNOW i want to see.

Now, Brewster, by now you should know I am an Aspie, and the ramifications for you> FYI yesterday I contacted a NZ Aspie (John) whom is a researcher like me, in fact his set up is more like Gerry's than mine, I am different, because I often fix PCs for people (I am getting out of that now, thanks FLASH) and I build up PCs from parts obtained from recycling services.

BUT, I am ALSO pretty good at business deals, and having no money, I am expert at wheeling and dealing.

Aspies see detail others miss, and everything in our memory is hyper-linked, my issue is, when talking to somebody, a key word is mentioned, and for 10-20 seconds my mind blanks while my internal Google Head-top Search comes up with 1000s of hits, which I need to filter first, before I begin discussion again. Its a pain, but that is what makes an Aspie so useful. Edison and Bell, were aspies it is believed now. My 24/7 insomnia is much like Edison's, even when in my best ever sleep, I am still fully aware of things, and my mind is processing, for some reason its always 3-am when answers it me, for major problems.

Hey Brewster,

1, My information is, that there is a "Cold War" (secret, or hidden) for market share, by Server Hardware and Software suppliers, the current weapon of choice being FLASH

2, That us IA members, are just some of the civilian casualty's of the war for world Dominance of the Data Server Markets.

3, You have to admit, that Microsoft and its planned dominance of the OS market is now a lost cause, because of the so called "Cloud Computing" and that Open Source is in, OSs are are going back to basics, Google is putting out its own OS now.

4, So where would I put my money?

5, The smart money is going into Server Hardware and Software, after all, apart from the wiring, fibering or radioing between, the WWW is ONLY data serving hardware, AND logically, the hardware supplier would want you to use his software too (Otherwise, don't blame us if the hardware we supply fails)

6, Using the Microsoft world dominance model, Server hardware suppliers would ensure their market share was safe, and increased, by insisting on serving software that was not totally compatible with their competitors hardware and software. Did you just get a FLASH in your head?

7, Until one side prevails, we the people will remain the unrecognised casualties.

Brewster, early 2002, you signed a deal with Sun Systems, and ended up with a standard 20 Ft shipping container, full of Server hardware, from which the IA is served out to the Whole Wide World.

Brewster, I am very impressed with the state of art hardware you now have, and also extremely impressed that all you need to do in the future is gently place (not drop) more such containers next to it, as (not when or if) the IA expands.

Brewster, how DID YOU ever manage to raise the cash for that state of art Hardware from Sun, seeing that the IA has no apparent business model, and relies on charity more than income from sales?

Brewster, was it such a GREAT deal provided that Sun dictates your software set up, which includes you having to GO FLASH as soon as the hardware went into operation?

I am being honest, no hidden agenda, if you replied that is the case, that Sun is dictating FLASH, I would begin supporting you 100%, as that hardware is MORE important to the IA (and me) than any software issue, AND I would begin helping find work arounds for myself and other members.

And I am sure people like Gerry would whole-heartily agree with me, and help too.

But continuing to not inform us, is ONLY going to create open warfare between us and you and your team.

We should NOT be expected to find out new upcoming issues by surprise, WE have the right to know BEFOREHAND your plans and begin preparing ourselves.

Regarding my line

"Brewster, early 2002, you signed a deal with Sun Systems"

2002 is a date very much in my mind, the beginning of my break from the past.

So 2002 was not the year of Brewster's deal with Sun, it was actually early 2009, thus the timing is just right, for the FLASH issues to begin hitting us civilians last month.

Peter,
Problems with Unix

It appears you are using a browser on a Unix OS. Files over about 8MB not been successfully uploading through this (flash-based) upload method. Instead, use our alternate upload solution by doing the following:
Fill out your information below
Hit the "Share my File(s)" blue button at the bottom
That will now take you to our full-featured item editor, where you can upload the file.

Back to the future?

Gerry

Christ Gerry, that upload yesterday has again failed, yet it was fully derived and edited, tested, before I knocked off, the PDF I uploaded was 535 KB.

What is that 662 at the end of the file name, every failure, has a suffix number, however this time the suffix appeared after I finished everything.

Before that, the suffix was being added at the name testing stage.

Question, have I been upsetting Brewster and Co with my writings about Flash?

It smacks of censorship.

Gerry, I have not been using the new SHARE button, however I have been playing with it, studying it.

I did note that after the outage yesterday, that new SHARE button became a bit less hyperactive and I got to click on it without it vanishing before I got my mouse to it.

I have noted other sites recently that use FLASH, that what FLASH does with them, has become hyper fast, eg, the slide show on the Trash Palace link I sent up, I had to catch the pause button while it was jumping around (because the photos were different sizes)and then manually click thru each photo.

FLASH is creating havoc world wide, it appears.

It might even bring down the WWW soon.

Cancel last message. (and duplication was due to excess moose clicks due to me shivering from the cold, I suspect my body temperature regulating medication needs increasing again, I had the relevant blood test done 2 days ago, but wont get the report till Monday)

The successful page is still there in fact, I was trying the saved URL for a failed attempt.

The correct URL is http://www.archive.org/details/SuccessForTitahiBays3rdMobileTelco

Gerry, that raises a very interesting question, for that first successful attempt after 5-6 failures I used a SHORTENED name.

Could it be that the past page name automatic shortening if too long NO LONGER WORKS, so now, if the name is too long, it only checks for uniqueness now, no longer shortens the name, just adds the number suffix, lets you upload, not telling you that its going to fail because the name is too long.

But Gerry, this following idea I will check later on the tasks page, with my 5 failures, could it be that checking uniqueness of file name, does NOT report back that I already used the name, but only adds the suffix, and when my page is being derived, that suffix triggers the failure, I.E. the suffix is a FLAG to the IA system saying something wrong (repeat of name) triggering the failure?

The suffix could be intentional, but not working right. The suffix indicates the error to the IA, but does not trigger a report back to the up loader.

In fact, that whole name checking thing, might be bust, it works, but does no more than add a error suffix code.

Gerry, if you got time, create a dummy document, with a short file name, and manually add in that -xxx code, (get the correct xxx from my first posting) and see what happens. (I am suffering from cold just now, if you can not, I will do so later)

Why did my first upload fail? Not sure, but I going to review those suffixes, there is more than one.

I wonder if there is a suffix that says, ALL OKAY? Or one that indicates SUPER USER ACCESS? Maybe one that gets a million bucks deposited into my bank overnight?

But Gerry, might there be ONE suffix, that triggers the old system back into use?

Hey Tracey, please please dont interfere, I am learning heaps and heaps, the more I study your system and software.

Peter is at his best when he finds number patterns. (In NZ, it has enabled me to find secret phone numbers, that doctors at ED GREATLY appreciate when I tell them, it saves them time, as it bypasses the useless triage call centre for mental health services. On 29th July 2009, I got my assessment saying that the last 30 years of of medication trying to cure me, was a waste, as there was nothing wrong, they just made matters worse. (The ED doctors encouraged me to get that assesement, they saw what was really wrong) And I have been med free for 18-months, but now I got medication to help me cope with the damage they did to me. Any wonder they leave via the back door, when I arrive? They picked on the wrong person, as sticking up for my rights the last 30-years, resulted in me becoming their worse nightmare, I got too clued up, I no longer get tricked into taking medication I know to be bad for me. They are not used to somebody saying NO
